Uses the Marine Biologist out of the country excuse and wants to use paypal. Look out for this guy.
"I'd like to pay you through a bank transfer or cash payment, but I'm currently on sea due to the nature of my work so, it won't be possible to come for the inspection & pay you cash. Sorry to hear you don't have a verified acct. with PayPal and I hope won't mind to set-up one for this transaction, as it will be of your personal use as well. It's the best Government approved means of on-line payment world-wid It's just a 3-5 mins registration process, fast & pretty secured like paying into a bank account. As I also have my bank acct been connected with my PayPal acct, so I'm being able to transfer funds on-line using my bank acct having it linked with my PayPal account. Being a Government official, I feel very much comfortable doing transactions using on-line approved Goverment forms to maintain security purposes so, I will gladly like you to consider this transaction done through PAYPAL. However, since I'm requesting it done through PayPal, I will personally be responsible for all PayPal charges for this transaction to go through. "
